We’ve done the same, but there are times when we’ve taken much more footage than we need and don’t want to store it all on the hard drive. The tape becomes the archive and we only bring over what we need for the project. We could just use the VCR on the camera to navigate through the tape to find the footage we want, but we’ve heard that this can become too much wear on the tape mechanism over time so we should use an external tape deck. The Sony model I mention above is the only one we’ve found. I’m hoping there are other choices out there. Or is everyone just storing all footage on RAID?
